Developing with Xamarin.iOS. This is C#, but any Java competent programmer should be able to easily get the hang of it. (We are a mixed Mac/Windows shop and owe no allegiance to Microsoft, despite using C#)

Sketch It, Make It (SIMI) recognizes a designer's sketch and turns it into a precise model for production on a laser cutter. I already have a solid prototype that demonstrates the concept. Other that seeing the demo, the best way to see what I mean is by watching the videos at http://sketchitmakeit.com. I developed this as part of my PhD at Carnegie Mellon. While my thesis focused on laser cutting, this style of interaction would be great for many other areas. This includes design domains like 3D printing, software engineering, animation, or architecture. It would also be ideal for educational applications like geometry, calculus, or physics. The next step is to develop an iOS version. Fortunately my existing prototype has a reasonably decent architecture, and the "hard parts" (e.g. the recognition algorithms) are already mapped out.
I just moved back to Boulder to commercialize my dissertation system called Sketch It, Make It: http://sketchitma.... I'm interested in design, STEM, and technology tools to support those activities (mostly software).
